This is my version of the pencil lines sketch.

I made the charm from an old key ( well i hope its an old key)
I used some metal charms that i colour with alcohol inks, and
some paper flowers.
Stitching the lace and paper(lace) was just for
a bit of fun.

The gorgeous lady in the pin had been enhanced with glossy and crackle accents
just for a bit of shine.
I misted the tag with paper artsy glimmer.

Stapled the one corner down and some
'monkey love letters'

Shabby chic mini page

Aideen hosted a swap on her blog ,

go check out het blog she has some gorgeous minis
The theme was 4x4 mini page shabby chic, lace, pearls, fairies, butterflies.

The Front I wanted it to look like an old corcet dress, very girly.

A charm holding the extra page closed

Just a little bit of lace

The Back of my page, a tag and a pocket.

I used old music paper and tea dyed it, and painted over the paper with some oil paint, just to create the vintage feel.

I created a stick pin for each pocket, it makes me think of shabby chic.

This is my tag, I stamped the music notes and painted with some glimmer mist, I also painted the lace. Once the brushes comes out there is not stopping me :D

Me and the love of my life

We had a white Christmas this year and it was just amazing. This is
just a quick layout using Graphic 45 paper and my favourite winter photo.
